Hollywood screws up the classics…again
So I was minding my own business and the trailer for the new Turtles movie comes on and I immediately thought, REALLY?! Really Michael Bay, you’re doing this again!!! Hollywood is clearly running out of material. For the last 2-3 years, the film industry has taken it upon themselves to remake some of the most classic and iconic movies from the 70s, 80s and 90s and I’m sick of it! Why am I sick of it? Because the remakes suck! It makes the originals look bad. The new generation won’t appreciate the awesomeness of those movies if Hollywood doesn’t stop trying to update them. Prime example, Total Recall, awesome movie. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mars, mutants, perfection. Hollywood remade it starring Colin Ferrell… it bombed horribly. Robocop, 1987, BEST movie EVER, once again Hollywood tampered with greatness…another bomb. Carrie was destroyed like 3 times. Ummm Sissy Specek was pure genius as Carrie. There was clearly no need to remake it and give it sequels!!! Michael Bay took on the Turtles franchise. I think he should stick to Transformers because he’s killing me with the Turtles. They don’t even look right. Remember how they originally looked, like actual turtles. Now, they look like underdeveloped dinosaurs on steroids ughhhhh, I can’t even!! Oh but check this out, Hollywood is making a sequel to Independence Day but without Will Smith. Yeah I know. The director said that Will is too big of a star and he can’t afford to pay him what he’s worth per movie. Dude! Will MADE that movie. He punched the alien in the face and dragged it across the desert in a parachute, c’mon!!! And guess who they got to replace him… Liam Hemsworth. You know the Australian actor from The Hungar Games who is engaged to Miley Cyrus. (insert twisted face with the side eye). Listen Hollywood, I know you need to make money, I mean making movies is your job but please, you’re doing it wrong. What’s next, The Fifth Element with Julianne Hough as Lelu? Or The Color Purple with Jussie Smollett as Mista? Or Enter the Dragon with Drake as Bruce Lee?!! (let me calm down). Just get it togetha Hollywood, get – it-togetha!
